PT10: “When are You Ready to Conduct a Piece?” with Wes Kenney

It’s Christmas at Podium Time and we have a very special episode for you. Wes Kenney is director of Orchestras at Colorado State University, where Jeremy studies, and is Music Director of the Fort Collins Symphony, Opera Fort Collins, and the Denver Young Artists Orchestra. Today he takes time out of his (much-needed) Christmas vacation to talk with us about why we need a mentor, his special pedagogical tools, and the personalities of composers. He also shares with us a great list of contemporary music and unique recordings, so start your new year right. And be sure to listen all the way to the end to hear what Wes Kenney would like on his tombstone!
